We have also taken into account the global consumption of the raw materials used in manufacturing these products.
We have not considered terpenes like Alpha-pinene,Limonene, etc which are directly used in fragrances.
We have taken into account the fixatives& diluents into account as they form a major contributor in fragrance formulations.
There are about 40% of the same chemicals also used in making flavours.
